Reasons for Consulting with a Medical Malpractice Attorney
Considering how many patients a doctor sees in just one day, each with incredibly unique symptoms, it's easy to see how human error could creep in occasionally. However, when people's lives are at stake, the following scenarios are unacceptable:
- Failure to diagnose a serious disease
- Failure to refer patient to a medical specialist if needed
- Maiming of a baby at birth
- Sending patient home from the emergency room with inadequate treatment
- Improper treatment
- Failure to warn patient of a treatment's known risks
Remember, a sickness or worsened condition doesn't necessarily mean someone was negligent. You must be able to prove that your medical condition was a direct result of a medical personnel's negligence—our experienced lawyers can help you do that.
Navigating Your Claim with a Lawyer
Medical negligence cases are among the hardest to prosecute. Doctors and hospitals have highly skilled lawyers available at all times. The medical providers prepare the medical records and keep them in their control. To put on a case, an injured party must hire a highly qualified doctor or medical professional to testify and these witnesses are expensive. Because there needs to be a significant investment of time and money in a case, it's crucial to have an experienced lawyer who can carefully analyze the case, build the necessary evidence, and successfully present it in court.
Whether the situation occurred in a hospital, clinic, nursing home, or in your own home, if you've been wronged by a medical professional, you must bring up your case soon after it occurs. If that wrong caused you increased physical and financial suffering, it's time to seek compensation before it's too late.
